Columbia River Fishing Guide

Kelly Short Outdoors is Oregon’s
Premiere Guided Sportfishing Adventures.

Kelly Short is a licensed Oregon fishing guide on Columbia River with 30 years of experience fishing Salmon, Sturgeon and Steelhead, year-round, all over the Northwest, specializing in guided fishing trips on the Columbia River, the Willamette River, Tillamook Bay & Siletz River & Bay. We also fish the Nestucca River, the Wilson River, as well as many Northwest rivers and Bays in Oregon.  My Columbia River fishing charters are highly productive and there’s plenty to fish for throughout the various seasons.  The Columbia River receives a steady flow of water and nutrients from its many tributary waters.  Columbia River salmon fishing is highly productive and we get significant catches of Steelhead & Sturgeon.  Kelly is a lifelong resident of this area and have been a professional Columbia River fishing guide for over 30 years now.  Give Kelly Short a call today to book your next Columbia River fishing adventure!
